The Johns Hopkins University Krieger School of Arts and Sciences created the Center for Biotechnology Education to engage diverse audiences in the world of biotechnology and to prepare the leaders of today, tomorrow, and the next generation for the challenges of the 21st century.
By expanding the scope of biotechnology education, the Center for Biotechnology Education is building a pipeline of students and professionals prepared to achieve success in K–12 education, graduate school, and the work environment in the fields of biotechnology, bioinformatics, regulatory science, and biotechnology enterprise and entrepreneurship.
Our goals are to increase public awareness and understanding of biotechnology, to inform educators of the resources and programs available locally and nationally, to become a resource center for biotechnology information, to coordinate training workshops for students and professionals, and to support biotechnology training and education locally, nationally, and internationally.
As a world leader in biological research and in the global biotechnology industry, our graduate programs are designed for working professionals—delivering the rigorous and practical curricula they need to advance their careers and academic ambitions.
Johns Hopkins’ Advanced Biotechnology Studies program is rooted in the multidisciplinary skills of basic research, drug discovery technologies, bioinformatics, regulatory affairs, and product commercialization that the industry demands. The program offers five master’s degrees, graduate fellowships, and certificates.
Through the Advanced Academic Programs (AAP), the Johns Hopkins University Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences offers flexible graduate degrees and certificate programs that respond to the unique educational requirements of working adults seeking to pursue their professional and personal development through academic exploration.
